Why does your F8X need a heat exchanger?

Your F8X will produce 425 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque from the factory. Add additional performance, and you’re susceptible to higher intake air temperatures (IATs). Higher power can mean higher intake air temperatures, and insufficiently cooled air entering the F8X motor will decrease its performance potential.

The stock charge cooler system rapidly heat soaks when subject to power pulls at 30 second intervals. By the sixth pull, IATs have climbed to over 130°F! In other words, without an upgraded heat exchanger, you’re susceptible to heat soak, giving up some of the gains you’ve made from other aftermarket power upgrades.

The ColdFront. Keeping things cool in the heat of battle.

Cue the AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger. Swapping the stock heat exchanger for the engineered AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger not only produces cooler and more stable IATs (peaking at just over 115°F after six power pulls) but also solid run-to-run consistency.

When taking the tests to the track, 0-100 mph runs show the AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger dropping IATs from start to finish, keeping the incoming air to the F8X motor cooler than stock, even while at idle, thereby reducing heat soak.

The AWE Tuning ® ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger achieves better results than stock by presenting a 24.4% larger frontal surface area while also increasing fluid volume by 125%. Further, the construction of the AWE Tuning core utilizes specially designed tubes and fins. More surface area and better fin aerodynamics for superior heat exchange, and higher thermal reserve through increased liquid volume ensures IATs stay low and power stays consistent and ultra-reliable.

Partnering with Griffin Thermal Products.

Having Griffin Thermal Product assemble our F8X ColdFront™ product line was a must considering the success of our ColdFront™ System for the Audi 3.0T. Their history, established influence, and continuous involvement with top level professional motorsports, including NASCAR’s biggest race teams, speaks volumes. Liquid to air heat exchanger construction requires leak-free results, or catastrophic engine damage can occur. Trusting a partner to do their job has never been so easy.

Structural integrity fit for any challenge.

The AWE Tuning F8X ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger meets rigid conformity through precise TIG welds, and vacuum brazing ensures a stronger, more durable unit. The F8X ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger is also reinforced with a special high temperature epoxy that provides additional tube-to-header strength and helps prevent vibration leak failure, a process which is Q-1 approved--one of the toughest quality standards to achieve in the industry. Quality manufacturing that can’t be found anywhere else, backed by AWE Tuning R&D, that your F8X will appreciate. The F8X ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger is engineered to provide lower IATs at all times--from docile street driving to heavy track use. Be merciless, it can take it.

The F8X ColdFront™ Protection Screen.

The AWE Tuning F8X ColdFront™ Protection Screen is the solution for guarding the full face of the F8X ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger from road debris. Constructed from a durable stainless wire mesh and surrounded by a stainless steel frame, it protects against any small objects that may find their way past the vehicle’s grille. This screen keeps the heat exchanger fins free of damage, allowing them to perform with maximum efficiency.

The bottom line.

The AWE Tuning BMW F8X ColdFront™ Heat Exchanger is a meticulously engineered and guaranteed proven solution to heat-based power loss in the BMW F8X platform. Boasting a 125% increase in fluid volume, 24.4% increase in frontal surface area, and resulting IAT drop of 15°F. Enabling the full potential of the BMW F8X...now.

Important installation notes.

Installer will need a 1 liter bottle of BMW coolant (P/N 82 14 2 209 769) for filling the heat exchanger.
